Rega Open Day, Let's Celebrate Vinyl - November 23rd!




Hi Everyone,

So we’ve had some great open days this year but I can’t think of a better way to finish of the year now that the evenings are drawing in and Winter is approaching fast, so proper HiFi weather, than having a Rega open where we can celebrate and play vinyl all day so if you love your music please feel free to join us.

There will be 4 demo rooms running and we are looking forward to our yearly visit from Chris and Dawn selling their great mix of new and used vinyl which is always incredibly popular, I challenge anyone to just buy one record, it is impossible.

2 of the stars of the day will be Rega’s new Aethos amplifier, priced at £2999, due out any day now, I can see this becoming a very popular amplifier indeed, I listened to it in here the other day and it certainly didn’t disappoint, it also looks great and weighs a tonne, and also we will be showcasing the new Planar 10 turntable with the new Apheta 3 moving coil cartridge which is definitely the best Rega turntable I have ever heard.

We will have representatives here from Rega throughout the day to help run the event and answer any questions you may have + refreshments available.

Below are the 4 rooms we will be running and please feel free to bring any vinyl along you’d like to hear.

Now I am a firm believer that you should spend as much on your speakers as you can, as long as you have a good enough front end to drive them, these 3 systems kind of prove this hopefully as all the speakers cost much more than the amplifier that drives them which is also a great advert for how good Regas amplifiers are, I’m sure they will all sound great, what could possibly go wrong.
